Threats to your organization can come in many forms. Sure, it can be a headline-grabbing storm of some kind or an attention-getting bomb threat, or perhaps a hacker. But it also can come in the form of something as seemingly innocuous as a power outage, water leak or coffee machine. And yet, three out of four organizations have no disaster recovery plan.
Chris Fink, vice president, support and implementation, for Arreva, and Ramona Dopps, data and administrative director at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, Inc., presented a session titled “Preparing for the Worst: Disaster Recovery 101” (#19NTCrecovery) at this year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) in Portland, Ore.
Disaster recovery planning is part of a larger process known as business continuity planning and should include planning for resumption of applications, data, hardware, communications such as networking, and other IT infrastructure.
As we celebrate our 36th year, NPT remains dedicated to supplying breaking news, in-depth reporting, and special issue coverage to help nonprofit executives run their organizations more effectively.
